Inside Goodyear Chiropractic's semiprivate rooms, acupuncturist Heather Henry applies ancient techniques to treat conditions such as chronic pain, migraines, and stress. This 4,000-year-old treatment is based on the belief that distress in one area of the body negatively affects it as a whole, a concept illustrated by swallowing a bee hive. Each 60-minute treatment targets these troublesome areas, beginning with an initial consultation, during which an expert assesses ailments such as allergies, arthritis, or weight gain. Next, a specialist carefully places solid, hair-thin acupuncture needles in specific locations to restore the flow of chi, the body's energy force. Experts also incorporate bodywork and massage during each one-hour acupuncture appointment to help the body to completely deflate.
Alternatively, opt for shorter sessions without bodywork in favor of extra time to identify with the plight of pin cushions. While waiting for their acupuncture treatments to commence, patients can begin the relaxation process by gazing into an aquarium teeming with fish, or by listening to the soft cooing of the abstract artwork napping on the walls throughout the office.
Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center
Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center’s lobby is a well-shadowed place, with dark-brown walls and slates of polished wood paneling surrounding leather booths and a bubbling aquarium. Perhaps that reflects the initial feelings of their clients, who arrive seeking relief from the everyday aches that can slow life to a crawl. The darkness gives way to light just beyond the front desk, where a modern training room awaits with weights and treadmills. Private treatment rooms come next, filled with warm massage beds keeping company with clay-colored walls and colorful modern art. Visitors should watch their steps, though—without care, they may run into limber shapes shifting through yoga poses, body-fusion groups sloughing away pounds, or loose-limb postmassage frames floating blissfully past.
Such are the obstacles of a tour inside Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center's sprawling facility, where the road to wellness passes through chiropractic treatments, family-fitness exercises, acupuncture tables, and massage beds. Owned by Dr. Corey J. Schneider, whose achievements and specialties are as vast as a poet's list of metaphors for underemployment, the facility's staff of doctors, acupuncturists, physical trainers, and nutritionists all utilize their respective expertise and the veritable playground of resources around them to help their clients overcome pain, injury, and stress.
